It happened at Loveland this year – the first Colorado ski run of the season opened Sunday. Arapahoe Basin started the season a day later.
Loveland reports that Mother Nature gave its snowmakers a helping hand by delivering nearly 3 feet of natural snow since this past week. So terrain has been opening on nearly a daily basis, and on Friday, October 29th Chair 6 will open. The total number of runs open will be up to 16. A-Basin reports two blue runs and two green runs are open.
And a third Colorado ski resort is opening for the season this coming weekend. Wolf Creek Ski Area in southwest Colorado says it will have three lifts running for opening day Saturday. Wolf Creek’s base was helped by 10 inches of new snow from a storm that passed through this week.
